Researchers have identified the highly prevalent, specific mutations that are causing the Omicron variant's high rate of infection. The findings help explain how the new variant can escape pre-existing antibodies present in the human body, either from vaccination or naturally from a recent COVID-19 infection.

To understand the dynamics of emerging topics in science and medicine, researchers looked at researcher participation in articles containing emerging keywords over 50 years. They found that although more human resources are needed for publication, large research groups less frequently generate emerging topics. Moreover, expertise in certain topics has become important for generating emerging topics, and researchers who generate emerging topics now tend to remain in that field.

New research shows that in natural vision, visual memory of images is affected by the size of the image on the retina. The findings can have many implications, including on the use of different types of electronic screens and the quality of information processing when we rely on large vs. small screens.
